For a very well preserved and maintained museum, I didn't expect the free entrance when I first came here. This museum basically tells you about banking, finance, and money history in Indonesia. They have a room in which they keep old Indonesian money since Dutch era. I think that's the most interesting room of all. One thing that I think... More

I have been to Museum Bank Indonesia for two times now. This place has been the first museum I visited since I graduated from grade 6 :) lol (but true!). I have not been impressed with museum since I was a kid, due to the fact that they are mostly no more than a place where they store stuff, dusty.... More

Amazed by the museum! Best museum in Indonesia by far as well as Ullen Sentalu in Yogyakarta. Ticket entrance is free. The building architecture is great, the museum contents wowed me many times. Better coming before 4 pm so you'll get a chance to enjoy the museum not in a rush due to closing time.

The best museum in Indonesia, very modern with contemporary art design. Enter for free (or cheap tickets). Wonderful collections and displays. The building architecture is good aswell. Definitely must visit.

This museum is one of the better ones in Jakarta but it still doesnt mean its food. The building is nice but aside from that there is not much to see or do. Wouldnt go again and only recommend if you really dont have much to do in Jakarta and need to kill some time.

The museum tells the history of Indonesia in the perspective of a banker or economist. It is great for college students majoring in economics and human sciences.The museum is the top choice for a museum in Indonesia and it's very well kept.

I was surprised that we were not required to pay at all to enter this museum. It has a lot of helpful crew at the entrance. The museum itself was a colonial building which is very interesting to see. You can learn about Indonesian banking and economic history here. We can easily walk from the train station to reach this... More
